Course summary

Course Summary

This is a new and innovative postgraduate course that will enable you to study and research current, relevant issues concerning autism spectrum conditions and to develop knowledge of inclusive pedagogy and practice. It is suitable for teachers and allied professionals working within educational settings who wish to deepen and extend their knowledge of ASC and inclusion.

The 2015 Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (DfE/DoH) specifies that all teachers must be seen as teachers of pupils with SEN and take responsibility for the progress of all learners in their class. With an estimated 1.1 per cent of the population diagnosed with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) and an increased focus on inclusion, this course allows you to develop your knowledge and understanding of pupils with ASC.

What You'll Learn

This course is relevant to both mainstream and specialist settings. The aim is to help teachers and other professionals respond effectively to the needs of pupils with autism spectrum conditions (ASC). You will be encouraged to make links between theory and your own practice, and become a reflective practitioner who is able to think proactively and strategically about provision for pupils with special and additional learning needs.

Your Future Career

This course will help you develop a range of transferrable skills that are desirable in a wide range of careers. These skills include knowledge of theories, legislation, policy and practice, computer literacy, planning and time management and written communication. It will also demonstrate your ability to design and carry out small-scale research and to engage in critical thinking. However, this course could also support your career in areas such as therapy, support work, social work, educational psychology and work with adults with additional needs.
